specific version of 1994's contract with america. the setting was a lumber company in northern virginia, the key points are these. a halt to any stimulus spending that hasn't gone out yet. and a rollback of overall spending to prestimulus, prebailout levels. repeal of the health care reform law. permanent extension of the bush era tax cuts for everybody. along with new tax breaks for small businesses. a freeze in nonsecurity related federal hiring and a requirement that all new legislation pass a constitution check. those last two points are a nod to the tea party which by the way handed several republican candidates their hats in this year's primaries. some brand new polling is boosting republican hopes in the november senate races with one big exception. our cnn senior political editor joins me from d.c. with the stories behind these numbers. let me get started with the numbers. then i want to hear what you to say about it. in pennsylvania, former republican congressman pat toomey leads joe sestak 49% to 44%. wisconsin republican ron johnson leads three-term incumbent russ feingold, 5

the american people vent if will you. interesting to me, i just spent a couple days in southeastern virginia for a big piece on cnn.com publishing it tomorrow about sort of what happened in the obama mojo. take virginia. look, there were all of these obamacans. republicans who became obama fans in 2008. they crossed the aisle because they were inspired, just like some democrats were, and thought he was going to change things. i talk to democrats, republicans and independents in southeast virginia. they were basically saying, look, not angry at him. saying, we think he's a good man. we think he's got ideas and is trying, but basically said he tried to do too much too fast in the first 20 months or so, and the second thing they say, it's just a constant political environment, because of the economy. the economic issues, you and gloria were talking about that, frankly it's a throw the bums out kind of mentality. look what a couple voters we talked to, republ >> no matter how he spent his time during office and how well he represented his constituency, unfortunately the majority of citizen whose

virginia. we picked virginia to sort of look at how the president is doing two years later because he won that state, first democrat to do that since 1964 back in 2008. and yet we found republicans and then democrats, independents, who voted for the president in 2008 saying this is not moving, turning around quickly enough. and one of the people we spoke to is reverend -- pastor mariner. and he said a lot of his parishioners, including african-americans who were proud to support the president in 2008 are saying what happened? >> people don't seem excited about voting. they don't seem energetic. what difference would it make? we've got the first african-american president in office, but look at where we are now. >> what do you tell them when they seem disappointed? they had a lot of hope, but now they're disappointed. >> i don't know if they're disappointed at him, disappointed in the process. i think they're disappointed in overall this functional attitude in congress. >> and that's an important point to make. i heard that from other voters, as well. even some republicans say they voted f
was much more polite this afternoon while explaining benefits to virginia voters. >> the single biggest driver of our deficit is the escalating cost of health care. it was bankrupting families, companies and our government. so we said we had to take this on. >> so we know just a little bit about open mics and you, the big question is whether they were talking about health care in that debate -- >> health care costs are an issue up in massachusetts. remember, they had the romney plan beforehand. interesting to see the president doing that. as you know this is one of the greatest white house frustrations. they thought they would get some political plus out of the health care plan. instead, americans are deeply divided. but the white house is hoping -- let's go over here and show some of the provisions of the new law take effect actually tomorrow and the white house is hoping that as people start to see these things, maybe they'll have a better feeling about the law. one of the things that takes effect, children can now stay on their parent's coverage up until age 26. you cannot be denied
they are, john. i spent the last couple of days in sort of southeastern virginia, norfolk virginia beach area on exactly that question. what happened to the obama magic. we picked virginia because he won that state. the first time a democrat did that since 1964. and this particular part of virginia, they elected a freshman democrat. and since that time, he's been running away from the president. a sure sign that the president's popularity, some of ththat magi has flipped in places like virginia. the democrat appeared with then candidate obama four times in 2008. now he hasn't appeared with him at all. he voted against health care reform. why? well, we talked to some independent voters in that district who voted for president obama in 2008. and they just say, look, they have no personal against the president. they think he tried to do too much too fast. and number two, they said the economy's so awful right now, people are just in complete panic mode right now and that what they want to do is take it out on their representative. whether it's a democrat, whether it's a republican. and ther
voters as he begins a cross-country trip today. from new mexico to virginia and spaces in between, he's got a packed schedule. live report coming up from our ed henry. >>> well, he was once called bush's brain. karl rove, the man former president bush called the architect is going on the defense again. he reportedly raised millions to attack democrats in the stretch run. is he worried more about the uprising in his own party? we're going to talk about the tea party and a possible gop civil war. >>> up first, though, extreme weather. emergency crews are fearing the total failure of a levee that's been around for 110 years in wisconsin is located along the wisconsin river just south of portage. emergency officials told about 150 residents to get out yesterday fearing that flooding could wash out the only road leading in and out of the area. some people who didn't listen are already cut off. the same storm system overflowed rivers and extremes in southern minnesota. water pouring through dam destroyed more than half of the homes in the small town of hammond. some people who were allowed
't debate it in congress, but i am nominated to represent my people in west virginia, and that is what am doing. >> eliot, you were having fun, and as a democrat, it is your party that has the reputation as a circular firing squad, but what is happening in the democratic party right now in this debate of taxes and the broader possibility of the jitters of losing the majority? >> well, there is panic the democratic party and not because of the primary season where the republicans have taken the worst of it, but as we approach november, and the earlier session, why does public not trust government, it is impossible to think of something that government has done well this the past significant number of years, and given that the democrat party has both houses of the congress, clearly, they will be blamed. that is what people are worried about doing what nancy pelosi did, and get people to look back to the bush er, and say, wait, we are better than then rings hollow, so that the party is in a state of emotional disrepair. >> and on the road last week, gloria, you remember that, they have the s

that this id s noa bad college town to rire in. harrisonburg, virginia, home of james madison university which beat virginia tech this weekend not that we're taking notice of that or i am. thanks for joining us, amanda. i wanted to ask you, in trms ofs these college towns, you picked the best college towns to retire in. how did you arrive at othis? there are lots of llege towns. >> sure. these coege towns have the traditional traits that retirees yook for, low taxes, affordable housing, good health care. on top of that each local college or university has a specific program that allows retirees to go back to school, to take courses in everything from the arts, language, literature, history. so seniors love these. they are using the courses to fill in the gaps from their education, from their undergraduate years. >> more than being on the golf course. >> exactly. you can't golf every y. >> as candy put it lots of keggers. let's get to the top five. starting at number five, let's put that on screen, bellingham, washington, 80,000, home of western washington university. why there? >> well, this
national committee and former governor of virginia. good to have you with us this morning. >> good to be back, thanks. >> one of the things i wanted to draw your attention was the cnn opinion research poll that says more people think that the country would be better off if congress was run by the republicans than the democrats. is there an enthusiasm gap out there? is there some question about whether or not democrats have the country on the right track? >> kiran, we definitely over the summer we're seeing that enthusiasm gap in a lot of polls. but we're seeing it dramatically close. so i think the cnn poll has a gap at about, you know, single digits, eight or nine points. we were seeing polls that showed it at 30 points over the summer. we're also seeing other polls where in the generic congressional ballot the republicans had a ten-point edge a month ago, and now it's essentially a dead heat among likely voters and very close among -- dead heat among registered and very close among likely voters. >> about 11 points, but go ahead. >> and we think we've got good momentum now. we're
'll throw us off the island. that's all right. we'll just camp somewhere else. >>> in virginia, the navy is also preparing, ready to move 35 ships at naval station norfolk out of harm's way if necessary. >>> and not knowing what earl will do, people like these boaters are going ahead and making plans as far north as massachusetts. another threat, rip currents. red flags posted along many beaches warning about danger. about 65 people were pulled from the water in virginia beach yesterday. a hurricane couldn't come for a worst time for business that depends on tourism dollars from the labor day weekend. some travelers are starting to cancel hotel reservations ahead of the storm. before we bring in chad myers, i want to show you this video from one of our i-reporters. earl whipped up very strong winds in saint kit's, causing some boats to wash ashore. this was yesterday in saint kits. let's do what we have to do. this is your hurricane headquarters at cnn, and when there is a hurricane, chad is our man on it. chad, what have you got? >> ali, the problem with this storm is that it's not a ca
? the probability is no. there are other places, like west virginia and other places, that three weeks ago we never thought was on the radar screen so -- >> a big point everybody around her makes and some republicans who aren't so sure make is, wait a minute, you know, all of the idiots who say she can't win in november are the same idiots who said she couldn't win last night. >> right. >> first, i find it interesting that michael steele is making so much sense and he's now going against the same establishment that never liked him. and so what, now tea partiers are going to rally around steele? so, this is -- what's so intriguing about this whole deal is it sort of reminds me of democrats and alvin greene in south carolina. it's like, where did this person even come from? what is going on here? >> well, you know, they know where she came from because they spent a lot of money trying to defeat her. today, after telling all of us we're not going to give her a dime, suddenly today, right, they gave her $42,000, which is the max they're aloud. i talked to a senior republican strategist who's doing a lo
. the republican candidate in virginia for governor we through a scalding campaign because of what he'd written as a student and all that have was sort of revived during that. so he has a fair point this ought to be, both candidates ought to be revived. but my point here is on christine o'donnell, i think the reason why she's now, she's burst into the spotlight as the the woman who probably cost the republicans their chance at winning the senate. she is going to certainly contribute to a fear among republicans about crossing lines and working with democrats as mike castle did. voting for cap and trade, as he did, and have that bring him down sends a very big signal that it's going to be extremely hard to govern and form bipartisan majorities no matter who wins in these elections. and finally, this election with her, you know, is probably going to drive or draw a lot of the republican candidates for president, you know this, draw them to the right. we're going to -- mitt romney was described in the financial times today as the guy who really lost tuesday night because he's too moderate. mitt rom
in california, meg whitman, carly fiorina, kelly ayotte in new hampshire, bob mcdonnell in virginia, chris christie in new jersey, scott massachusetts. all these new candidates have one thing in common. they're outsiders. they're fresh faces and they don't want to grow washington's economy, they want to grow america's economy. they want to stop taking money out of the american people's economy and sending it to washington. >> let me make something clear. >> the tea party is the easiest part to focus on because it's got the brightest feathers and most colorful, but it's much bigger than that. that's why republicans are probably going to gain something like 52, 53 seats. >> i could not agree with you more. >> ask americans about keynesianism being dead, they're voting on it this election. >> i could not agree with you more about growing private sector job creation versus government, and that is what smart politics is all about. what i'm saying is the policies coming out of the tea party are so disassociated from reality. in terms of what it takes to do it. if you sit down with meg whitman, b
, virginia, is former governor tim kaine, who is now chairman of the democratic national committee. thank you, governor -- thank you, mr. chairman, for joining us. i want to start out talking about health care reform. you think democrats should be out there bragging about it. so what do you make of the democrats who are putting out those ads, bragging that they voted against it? >> well, candy, i travel all over the country. i guess i've been in about 42 states. and most democrats i see on the trail are very proud of the accomplishment and they're talking about it. but you're right, some, particularly house members in districts that, you know, can often get gerrymandered and become tough districts are distancing themselves from the health care bill. i don't tell people how to run their races, but i've been on a ballot seven times and won seven races, and in my experience, you ought to be proud of what you're doing and promote the accomplishments. now, obviously, folks who voted against health care, they're going to talk about why. but i think for the democratic party, generally, this signific
's get straight to this tax fight. president obama went out to the fairfield, virginia, doing a little town hall in a backyard. and he was making his case that the you should keep tax cuts for those families making $250,000 anbew, and those making more than that should pay more. number one, the president says that's only fair. number two, he says, we can't afford it because red ink. >> but we can't give away $700 billion to folks who don't need it a think somehow that we're going to balance our budget. it's not gog to hapn. >> one intere, ing int, freddy, to the democrat the first, in the audience, as the president did, that was the local congressman jerry conley. if you go to jerry conley's website, democrat,ni rrengior re-election, a little nervous. probably okay, but probably a little nervous. on his website, he's also a handful of democrats who support extending the bush taxes cut while the economy continues to recover, a position "the wall streu journal" calls reasonable. you have a president in the backyard with a congressman who disagrees with him. >> i think as the voters sta
a lot, gop leadership types went to a lumber company in virginia. they wore un-washington clothes and spoke from a podium sandwiched between piles of wood. the anti-washington tone was struck about 30 miles from the nation's capital. the picture was different, but the concept's familiar. the 21-page pledge includes calls for repealing and replacing health care reform. and making the bush tax cuts permanent for everyone. it would also freeze the hiring of federal employees in non-security jobs and roll back spending to 2008 levels, before the stimulus bill, before the bank bailout. the pledge was largely free of pronouncements on the social issues, the kind of talk that tends to scare off independent voters, and there was little about what republicans would do about popular but unsustainable entitlement programs like social security and medicare, no mention of earmarks either. marshala blackburn and kathy morris-rogers next. >>> joining me now, republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee and cathy mcmorris rodgers of washington state. thank you both so much for coming. i
you need to know right now. >> hey, john. virginia's governor has just rejected a clemency request for a death row inmate for a woman to be scheduled for execution. teresa lewis is now set to die by lethal injection thursday evening. >>> six men are under arrest in britain in connection with an alleged terrorist plot against pope benedict 16th. he is fine. today he became the first pope ever to pray in the westminster cathedral. >>> there are two storms to keep an eye on. hurricane karl is expected to cause torrential flooding and mexico. in the atlantic hurricane igor could hit bermuda late sunday >>> president obama sidestepped today by naming elizabeth warren. she'll set up the new government protection agency. >> from now on consumers will also have a powerful watchdog, a tough independent watchdogs who job it is is to stand up for their financial interests, for their families futures. >> john, it seemed like he avoided a side show. but sometimes, you know, avoiding the side show you end up getting a bitter side show. >> remember, there's a big fight over keeping the agency and
is there, outside of d.c., sterling, virginia, this morning. a lot of what's in the pledge seems to be classic republican ideas that we've heard for some time now, years, as a meat of fact, anything new in here? >> reporter: well, i think what's new and what's most interesting is the way that house republicans are trying to make the tea parties voters, especially understand that they are trying to listen to them. i think we have some examples of points that i saw were clear indications that they were trying to reach out. little things. for example, weekly votes on spending cuts. a pledge to cut congress's budget. a net hiring freeze of nonsecurity federal employees. and a vote on every regulation costing more than $100 million. those, each of those, is a nod to the idea that many in the base, you know, you hear republicans talking about this rebellion. rebellion is in large part about spending. so these are little things that the house republicans say they will try to do to address that. in addition to that there are some items in here that address the whole idea at that governme
group in a home in northern virginia right outside washington, d.c. he complained that his administration is in a wrestling match with republicans over a tax break for the wealthiest americans. let's bring in our senior white house correspondent, ed henry, and theio senior political analyst, gloria borger. for pryou. the president was low key today as he has been for the last couple of days. what's going on? >> they have john boehner back in a corner with some of the president's fiery speees last week on the tr this time he was in a smaller group in a back yard. maybe he didn't need to throw out as much red meat. but they feel good inside the white house for a first time in a long time. they feel they're in offense after playing so much defense. that's all because of what happened. if you play out over the last few days, friday's white house news conference, the president really underlini the message that the republicans should not hold the le class hostage by demanding that you also extend the tax cuts for the rich. at the same time you do them for the middle class. 48 hou
from virginia, theresa lewis has been executed. she died by lethal injection. the 41-year-old grandmother was convicted of plotting the 2002 killings of her husband and stepson. asked if she had any last words, lewis said, quote, i just want kathy to know i love her and i'm sorry, referring to kathy cliffton, the daughter of one victim, and the sister of another. her lawyers argue that lewis borderline i.q. allowed her to be manipulated by her co-defendant. >>> today at the u.n., president obama told the general assembly now is the time for israelis and palestinians to work toward a future that includes a palestinian homeland and a secure israel. the president also says the door remains open for talks with iran. however, iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad suggested the u.s. was somehow involved in the 9/11 attacks, prompting delegates from the u.s. and several allies to walk out. >>> a $42 billion bill aimed at helping small businesses cleared the house today with the support of just one republican. the senate passed its version a week ago with two republicans backing i

with an impressive track record of predicting such trends. director of the university of virginia politics and joins from us charlottesville. good to see you this morning. let's talk about what you got in your crystal ball. you are talking about essentially a gop takeover of the congress or very, very close to it. in the senate eight to nine gop seats is what larry is predicting in his crystal ball. pickup of 47 seats in the house for republicans, governor's races could swing eight of those seats to the gop side. all in all, pretty impressive election result there if all of that pans out. how did you come to these conclusions. you know, we are hearing that a lot these days. you know, forecasts are coming out. how do you get to those conclusions? >> jim, of course, we studied every race just about every day. this is our job. and we look for lots of different indicators. generic ballot, democrat versus republican. presidential popularity, state of the economy, and the strength of individual candidates, there are so many factors that go into each thing. look, jim, you have been around a long time. you

the elections? virginia write, depends on how smart or stupid people are. if they're smart, the increase in poverty levels will create a corresponding increase of votes for the democrats. why anyone poor would vote republican is beyond me. missy writes it doesn't matter if democrats are at fault or not, they're the party in power. the nation looks to them for solutions. when they fail to address the very real problems this country has they deserve all the blame that is heaped upon them. joe writes, hard to say how it will affect the elections. it does indicate how effective the emfa service preventing the transfer of wealth from the rich to the poor has been. the rich are assuccumulating al the wealth. mike writes, the only group people can turn to if they are fed up with the status quo is the tea party. it's very possible people are voting for the tea party candidates simply out of frustration, not knowing what the group really stands for. she writes from arizona, it will probably be bad for the democrats as there are so many voters out there with short-term memory loss who don't rememb

. >> and president obama held a discussion in the home of falls church, virginia, but he strayed off topic to talk to the crowd about a question he often faces about how he manages stress. >> people ask me, sort of how do i stay calm in my job. the reason i stay calm in my job is that every night at 6:30 no matter how busy i am, i go upstairs and i have a short commute, and i go upstairs and i have dinner with my wife and my daughters. and as long as they are doing good, as long as they are healthy and happy and running around and telling me stories about the crazy things that happened at school today, then there is a certain baseline that just gives you that sense, well, i can take anything, right? now, the flipside is when malia or sasha get a sniffle or an ear infection or a scrape or a bruise, i'm over there just miserable. >> dinner with the family helps anyone out, i would say, with stress. speaking of dinner, wolf, any dinner plans with mr. trump this evening for you? >> no dinner plans. i am getting on the plane to fly back on the shuttle. i will be back -- >> we miss you. >> i think that
